About Chicken Cock 20 Year Old Cotton Club Rye Whiskey

Grain & Barrel Spirits is the passion project of Matti Anttila, a former J.P. Morgan investment banker turned spirits entrepreneur. During a business trip to Brazil, he sampled the local Brazilian Cachaça. He enjoyed it so much so that he decided to launch Cabana Cachaça quickly building it into a successful brand. After another spirits investment, he founded Grain & Barrel Spirits in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2013. Today, Grain & Barrel Spirits is a global beverage platform that develops authentic spirit brands.

One of their core brands is The Chicken Cock label that dates all the way back to 1856 and is one of the oldest bourbon brands in history. The brand was successful in Paris, Kentucky, and its popularity peaked during Prohibition when production was moved to Canada. In the 1950s the Chicken Cock Distillery was destroyed by a fire, and in 2016, entrepreneur Matti Anttila of Grain & Spirits bought the brand and their whiskey line was revitalized in 2017.

Crafted with a mash bill of 90% rye and 10% malted barley, the Chicken Cock Cotton Club Rye has spent a full 2 decades in a used bourbon cask. When Chicken Cock was forced to move production to Canada during Prohibition, their rye was being smuggled back into the US in tin cans. This expression pays tribute to those times with a replica pre-Prohibition era tin canister. The name is a reference to the Cotton Club, a famous speakeasy that featured Chicken Cock as their house whiskey.

About Rye

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.


By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
